Texas College defensive back and kick returner Dathan Brown is now a member of the New Orleans Saints. Brown signed a free agent contract with New Orleans this morning and will report to Saints' mini-camp on May 11. Brown is the second Steer in three years to head to the NFL. Jonathon Combs signed with the Washington Redskins in 2004.
"I am really looking forward to the chance to show my skills at the next level," said the two-time All-Central States Football League Performer. "I know I have a lot of work ahead of me, but it feels good to get a foot in the door."
"It's always good for a student-athlete to receive an opportunity to compete," said Texas College President Dr. Billy C. Hawkins. "Dathan has been a real credit to our institution, and we wish him the best. We are very proud to call him a Steer."
